When thinking of “Life Lessons” in our minds, why do we believe that it has to be insurmountable moments or life altering decisions? It is sometimes the little changes that have the biggest impact on you and the people around you. I must confess that during these past few months, I’ve had to look in the mirror of my soul and quiet honestly, I didn’t like the reflection I saw. Deep inside I knew I had to make some internal changes.
I got caught up in the negative energy of bashing someone that is near and dear to my heart. I took the hook and hung on, meanwhile, slung that negativity everywhere. What an eye-opener! After the fact, I told myself that I would have to stop and it was best to just keep my own opinions. Needless to say, I am human, and once again found myself stating things I had no right to state. Even though this time it was out of concern, my words were taken completely out of context.
Sometimes life takes us right back to that place where a lesson was taught just to make sure we truly learned that lesson. Evidently, I failed, but you know what? I only have to hit the pavement two times to know that it’s best to keep any opinions and assumptions to myself; and it’s best to allow whoever is involved in the actual situation to vent and speak their minds without my input. I am a person who is not afraid to express my thoughts, and at times, I have expressed some words with others that have come back to haunt me. So I ask myself, when things keep coming back to haunt us…is this perhaps a mysterious way the Universe makes sure that our lesson was learned?
